After years of enabling my two sons is there still hope after all these years to live differently?

Olivia K Absolutely. Just like someone in addiction needs to get support to stay clean, families members must do the same to change enabling behaviors. It starts with a willingness to ask for help from others while sitting through some uncomfortable feelings. Many people avoid setting healthy boundaries because it brings up anxiety and fear. It is essential to get as much support as possible through counseling and groups such as Al-anon/Nar-anon. Connection with others who can guide you will help immensely, especially when it is tempting to revert to old unhealthy behaviors.
